The librarys part in the integration of the mentally disabled persons into the society (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to look into what part libraries take in the integration of mentally disabled persons into the society. What I wanted to know more about was how the mentally disabled persons experience the library. I also wanted to find out what librarians and persons working with mentally disabled persons have to say about the part libraries take in the integration of mentally disabled into the society. The study is based on interviews and literature studies. I have interviewed two librarians, four mentally disabled persons and two persons working with mentally disabled people. I chose these three different groups because I wanted to have different perspectives. To analyse the material I have used two different theories. The first sees it from a library perspective and the other looks at it from an integration perspective. In the result I have seen that the mentally disabled persons I interviewed were satisfied with the service they got from the library. The librarians felt that they needed more education about mentally disabled persons. The librarians said that the library had been involved in a project that educated persons working with mentally disabled persons. This education inform about the importance of literature and getting information suitable for the mentally disabled persons. The two persons I interviewed working with mentally disabled persons have received the education. They were really pleased with what they learned and have used their knowledge in their work.
